Brothers and Sisters,

 

Now that we have finished enjoying our left-over Thanksgiving food, it is time for the mad-dash that is the end of the semester.  Here are the important updates as we enter December:

 

·         The 301 Pay for Performance survey is out, so please fill it out right away.  If you did not receive the survey and believe you should have, please email Richard.foster@tusd1.org to have him email you the survey.  Remember that this survey is to help the 301 committee to address the underutilization of the Pay for Performance monies.  If you have questions regarding the survey, please first reference the Q & A piece TEA put out.  If you still have questions, please email TEA.  The survey closes late Tuesday, so please vote right away.

·         TEA has an exciting Professional Development opportunity coming up this Saturday, December 3rd.  Join your colleagues for a session on learning how to use technology to increase your efficiency, specifically steps to save time documenting student behavior as well as parent contacts and team collaboration.  The link has more information; do a search on the TUSD portal for course #13221 to register.  See you Saturday at Palo Verde.   www.smore.com/pkbb1-register-today?ref=email

·         TEA General Membership Meeting and Celebration!  This is an opportunity for Association Representatives and members to join us and hear what has taken place over the first semester.  TEA is providing a catered meal, desserts, and adult beverages.  The meeting is scheduled for December 14th at 4:30 at TEA (4625 E 2nd St).  Please mark your calendar and come join us for a fun, informative, and celebratory time.

 

Enjoy the last four weeks of this semester, stay warm and keep your vitamin C intake up.  See you Saturday for the PD opportunity and on December 14th at TEA at 4:30 for our General Membership Meeting.
